Possibly one of the most exciting applications of digital technology in education are the kinds of activities that encourage the unique ‘peer to peer’ interactions between students, and/or the teacher, within a shared online space. Despite being one of the most transformative tools for enhancing learning on an iPad, it is one of the easiest to set up, monitor and maintain. There are many platforms you can use for this, for us as a GAPPS school, Google Sites provide a 'wiki' environment that works magnificently. It is one of those applications of tech that goes deep with educators—if you want to see a teacher embrace and RUN with a tech tool, this is the one; it takes (literally) a few minutes to post a provocation (maybe longer to actually think of a good provocation) then sit back and watch the students take it and transform it.
Now the teacher sits back and absorbs the feedback, watching the conversations unfolding, expanding and developing, but their role, as you will learn in this presentation, is still critical.
